I just got a message to upgrade Adobe reader to v8 on my XP dual core that was working perfectly. Soon after that, my system got sluggish and I got a blue security screen that I had to check installed programs. I noticed that Adobe installed to startup processes, one called reader_sl.exe that were consuming all my memory and CPU and who knows what else they were doing. Any experience with similar issues with Adobe or any other programs. It is getting too frustrating with these issues. Any other solutions to ged rid of this junk program?
